Today is Forged Friday at New Species CrossFit. As coaches and athletes, we believe it is our patriotic duty to consistently honor those that protect our safety and our country on a daily basis. The threats that our First Responders and U.S. Military face are frequent, while ours, thanks to their effort, remain few.As you train today, please keep all of our American Heroes in your heart and on your mind.
Always support our Troops and First Responders. God Bless America!
